"Incorrect Code" errors with Two-Factor Authentication


The most common cause for "Incorrect Code" errors is that the time on your Google Authenticator app is not synced correctly.

Follow the instructions to make sure that you have the correct time in your Google Authenticator app.


For Android users:


Go to the Main Menu on the Google Authenticator app

1. Select Settings

2. Select Time correction for codes

3. Select Sync now

On the next screen, the app will confirm that the time has been synced, and you should now be able to use your verification codes to sign in.


For iOS (Apple iPhone) users:


Go to the iPhone Settings.

1. Select General

2. Select Date & Time

3. Enable Set Automatically
